guest: the koppers have a long history here in the u.s. and they can be in different forms. they can be owned by the members themselves and they use their strength as a group to purchase goods or services and the cooperatives of that would be formed across the united states would act in the very same way as they do today. i informed rural illinois and we are very familiar with cooperatives as individuals come together as groups. americans think of themselves as the rugged individualists, but actually, we join groups all the time. and the cooperatives give the power of groups to the individual. i think that it can bring competition to the health care sector. we need greater competition. but we need greater choices for individuals. and that is what i think cooperative's done correctly will do. a cartel, on the other hand, is controlled by the suppliers and their monopolistic -- and they are monopolistic and they do not serve to enhance competition. cartels killed competition. we ought to be careful about the real language that is being used. kecoughtahost: it sounds like ot c

can send us a message by twitter. here is the front page above the fold in "the washington post" -- as a ben bernanke is reappointed, the announcement will come this morning from an elementary school. here is what mr. obama will say "as an expert on the causes of the great depression i'm sure that ben never imagined he would be part of the team responsible for preventing another." he purged the collapse with calm and wisdom with bold action and thinking outside the box. -- he approached that collapsed. these reporters indicate that mr. obama's decision had become the subject of growing speculation. in washington policy circles the president called the fed chairman to the oval office this past wednesday to offer him another four-year term. mr. ben bernanke then flew off to wyoming where he gave the defense of his controversial policies. one of the points, is that appointing a democrat such as janet yellen, alan blinder, would have been popular with many democrats, but a move by mr. obama to install his own person at the fed might have rattled markets and unsettled the foreign inv

we'll treat it first. most families in china earn less than 1,000 u.s. dollar as year. the 15 cents is affordable health care. but reeed. we can't afford to treat major illnesses, she says, we're afraid if it's serious we'll have to spend a lot of money. but health care reform is also important to this economy. the chinese have an incredibly high personal saving rate. currently that's to cut against medical bills. the government is imposing a better health care system will mean that they save less and spend more. that will be good for economic growth. to do that, they have sun verse sal health courage of 20/20. >> here is tony harris. >> good morning, everyone. this is august 10th. the top stories in the cnn "newsroom." >>. >>> divers look for bodies in the hudson river. >>> a growing appetite in small town america. good morning, everyone. i'm tony harris and you are in the cnn "newsroom." temperatures are reaching a pitch and the chanting, the yelling, the hard to reach the debate through all of the noise. to determine what happens with health care reform, we'll cut through all of
of a senator in new jersey. by "us," i think he was talking to the latino community. what do you make of that? >> i think anybody who is going to cast a vote for or against a nominee based on the color of their skin, that is the wrong way to be making a decision. he and the latino activists can scream all they want. the people they are appealing to and that they are going to try to rev up are not likely republican voters in the first place. i do not think this is going to make a difference. you have people like orrin hatch, who has an excellent relationship with the latino community, he cast a vote against this woman. he has one of the best outreach policies of anyone in the senate. neil: when senator barack obama voted against samuel alito for the court, i do not know if there was an outcry, "it is going to hurt him with a italian-americans." i would hope we are beyond some silliness -- hurt him with italian-americans." >> we ought to be beyond that, too. race and gender do not block people's elevation to hire op- ed's any longer in america. it just does not happen -- elevation to higher ele

"according to this interrogator, the redacted portions are indicated there, you'll see, interrogators said to khalid shaikh mohammed that if anything else happens in the united states, we're going to till your children." also, in addition to details we learned over the weekend about the use of a gun and a power drill to intimidate a detainee into giving up information, now another tactic has been revealed. the report says, quote, in july 2002, blamed operations officer participated with another operations officer in custodial interrogation of a te taney. blank repor

't have any public events on his schedule. that worries us. what happens here at the white house, the press conference, something. the president is sitting down with the staff and very quietly going on with all of the options with health care reform. we didn't have the senate supporting the public option. they waned to bring in more republicans, the blue dog democrats, as well as assure people that the insurance companies -- the private insurance companies that believe they're going to go out of business, that public health care reform is'a bad idea. what else circulates. what's out there -- perhaps the idea of a co-op. you see the back and forth. one is de-emphasized, another pops up. this is about give us something, guys. what's going to stick here? hopefully the health care legislation believes he's going to sign to law is'going to look the way it looks today, yesterday. we're trying to get a balance, if you will, to see what is the formula to get the most support. >> interesting to see what else percolates out there. a little later at 7:10, speak with congressman weiner we sa

, right? >> i am saying there is a trust gap that is growing, and as you just articulately put it for us, we are seeing promises being broken in other regards, and when it comes to my personal privacy, the privacy of my own conversation and, neil, as i might add, this is not about a suspicious suitcase being left in the middle of grand central station or some vehicle parked somewhere that looks suspicious. this is something that has something to do with the core fundamental principles of health care, and we are having our debate about that. if we are not able to have that in the privacy of our own homes and in casual conversation, this is no longer america. neil: thank you. we would read what kevin has put out, because he has framed this debate way beyond a liberal or conservative conversation. left, white, red, blue. this is just plain illegal. our senior analyst judge andrew napolitano joins us. it is illegal? >> yes. when richard nixon was worried about anti-war protesters during the vietnam era, he said fbi agents and undercover cia agents under cover, which is against the law to be
. hopefully nobody's handing him his approval ratings. brian: they're not strong. for him, anyway. used to be at 70%. for a while it was 60%. right now if you go on the weekly ratings, the weekly poll with galup -- and they've been doing this for a while, the galup family. his approval rating is 52%. that's a significant drop considering where it was. last month it was at 59%. it was really before, eric, this whole health care debate began. eric: o'reilly put this out last night. he was 40% of the people polled in rasmussen strongly disapproved. i mean strongly, not just disapproved. only 28% strong lay proved. -- strong lay proved. there's a real movement with people getting more and more upset with how he's handling the health care debate. gretchen: there's been little flip in people who describe themselves as liberals. as you might expect. the same would have been true for the most part for george bush, that the ardent supporters probably aren't going to change their mind. however, the two key groups, the independents -- remember, this is how barack obama got elected, because so muc
. the stretch of the hudson river is just down river from where us airways flight 1549 crashed last january. susan joins us live from the banks of the hudson river. >> reporter: i covered that incident, as well, obvious lay far happier outcome than this. there is a recovery operation going on at this hour. as you see off into the distance as long as we still have light, you can see boats with the new york fire department, the u.s. ghost guard has been on site, the police department all trying to help as well as officials and authorities represented from new jersey, as well. and you you indica as you indicated, the conditions are fairly rough. wind isn't too high, but divers can barely see in front of their face. advise at is limited to between feet. so you see those boats out there, that is a flat form for on four teams of divers taking turns going down into the depths of the hudson river only 30 feet deep, but it is extremely murky down there. and they are trying to seek out the wreckage. as of about an hour or two ago, new york city's mayor michael bloomberg said that they thought that th
. >> this is the reason that judge greg step down from the administration and is now a u.s. senator. there is a good reason for you to be concerned about this. >> a couple of you mentioned the top tier candidates and you made the comment that if we have a couple of wins, mabel they will -- maybe they will step in. maybe it's time we have states and that are not afraid to lose. [applause] if these people are top tier candidates, they ought to be running whether they are free to lose or not. otherwise, they're just professional politicians and that charlie crist is a prime example. he was supporting the stimulus package without even reading it. >> i agree with you in the sense that in a perfect world, i think you are right. let me go back to the initial point which was what haley barbour said. according to him, most of the people who won the were part of the american revolution in 1994 signed on after the '93 victories. that is late to get into the game. that is only one year out. whether it is right or wrong, these people -- if someone runs for office, they are putting their life on the line put. it
a certain galaxies and the distance it is speeding from us. once you have a relation between the distance and the speed, and the relation, but the way, is linear so if something is more distant, it moves faster from us -- once you have a relation like this, you can roll it back, like a video that you run backward, and you can discover when it did the expected start. if i tell you that the distance from here to baltimore is -- i don't know what it is -- 40 miles, let's say, it will take you an hour to get there. of course, it never does, because the parkway is always full of repairs and things, but that is a different question. in this particular case, you can use this to roll the movie of the universe back and discover how old are universe is. the problem is, in astronomy, while you can determine speeds relatively easy, because you use something that is similar to the doppler effect, this thing that when something moves away, waves gets spread out, so you can, by seeing how waves gets spread out, it tell how fast it is moving, distances are very difficult to tell in astronomy. you look to
with a small plane this afternoon over the dson river. the two aircraft went down just south of where a u.s. airways plane crash land seven months ago but beverly, tragically the outcome is much different. new york mayor michael bloomberg called the accident not surviveable. it is a crystal-clear, sunny day. three people on the plane including a child were headed to ocean city, new jersey. a number of people strolling along the river witnessed the deadly crash in disbelief. >> it was like a movie. it was turning, then the head went down first. >> two victims have already been recovered in the water. witnesses say the aircraft collided not far from the hoboken line. >> the helicopter went straight down in the water, there was a puff of smoke and a bang, the plane hit the water in a couple of pieces. >> according to the f.a.a., the plane, a piper a.a.-32 had just taken off from teterboro airport in new jersey. mayor bloomberg says it pacer the airplane crashed into the rear of the chopper. >> the visibility is about two feet at the depth of 30 feet. >> while the coast guard continues gatherin
recognizes h1n1 is going to be a challenge for all of us and there will be people who are going to be getting sick in the fall and die. >> another deadly issues, president calderone's war against mexican drug cartel, which are only getting stronger. drug-related deaths surpassed 12,000 this month. president obama stands firmly with calderone as the cartels have increasingly branched out into the u.s. >> we have responsibilities to reduce the trafficking of guns into the south that help strengthen these cartels and the flows of money and money laundering. >> they will also discuss an issue of livelihood, unemployment in the u.s. caused by a trucking dispute. in 1994 the two countries agreed to allow mexican trucks to haul their loads directly into the u.s. to expedite delivery as long as safety measure were met. but members of congress and teamsters union complain the trucks are unsafe and block them from entry. >> allow them into our country will diminish safety on our highways. >> reporter: in retall yashgs, mexico slapped $2.4 billion worth of tariffs on products, devastating businesses th
the crash as it happened. david wolf joins us from hoboken, new jersey. tell us what you saw. >> i was sitting on the pier from the hoboken side. i was watching the helicopter, a small tourist-type helicopter that is quite common to see. i was following it. out of the side of my vision i saw a small, private airplane coming from the side and i saw the two of them smack into each other and a giant puff of smoke, then the wings flew off. then just the debris quickly fell into the water. >> i imagine there are a million things going through your head at that moment. first of all, did i just see what i really think i saw? what were you thinking? what went through your mind at that point? >> yeah. it all flashed within two seconds. i was like, oh, my god, am i really seeing this? at some point when i saw the puff of smoke or the explosion come out, i definitely screamed. then i thought, okay, maybe it's an emergency situation. what do i need to do? i realized there was nothing to be done. it was so fast and everything just fell in pieces. i knew there wasn't anything to do. >> what happ
these charges. we will say, again, as we've said before that we said before when they left u.s. soil, they never intended to cross to north korea. according to the charges, they confessed. so we know they're sorry. we're very sorry. and we hope that the north korean government now will show compassion and just let them come home. >> lisa, i mean, does it concern you that the north korean government is saying they were there for a smear campaign, not acknowledging they were independent journalists? >> all we can say is that they are journalists and they were doing their job. my sister has been a journalist for years. and that's really all we can say. you know, we weren't in the courtroom. we don't know any sort of specifics other than what was released. we just hope, you know, given the fact that we know the girls have apologized profusely, that they will let the girls come home to us. it's been -- it's been three months. and that's been too long for us. >> stay with us. because coming up in five minutes' time, we're going to be talking to victor cha, the director of asian affairs at the white ho
disrupted this election like many of us thought might take place. so far this election is said to have gone reasonably well despite the violence and low turnout. brian: who's favored to win? is it karzai in a run away or are the polls, indeed, closing? >> well it looks like president karzai will probably take the overwhelming share of the vote but probably won't get enough to avoid a second-round runoff. he needs 50% plus one vote in order to win outright. and right now he looks well short of that. but it all depends on turnout to see just who who will win and if there will be a second round of this election. brian: all right, conor. thanks. gretchen: iraq's prime minister is calling for a security review after a wave of bombings. sunni insurgents are blamed for the violence yesterday in baghdad. malaki's statement is the first by government leaders there acknowledging security problems since the u.s. withdrew troops from iraqi cities. president obama called the violence "senseless." two soldiers are dead in the crash of an army blackhawk helicopter near the top of colorado's second highest
in a very readable book and i know that john and elizabeth had have special comments for us and join us for the q & a afterwards. so please join me in welcoming to the podium, john roberts. >> just a little bit over 50 years ago, a very enigmatc monk sailed into the harbor of new york to settle into the saw it's. i decided to start this morning talking about him, because he turned out to be the living human bridge in a changing political movement to maintain tibet's freedom that began as a cold war operation in the 1950's under president truman, and continued to become a counterculture cause up till today, where it's a mass global movement. and that transformation of a political movement to maintain freedom for an occupied country is really a kind of profound thing. the monk was a colmic mongolian. they shared tibetan buddhism going back 50 years with the dalai lama and the tibetan theocracy. he never would have come to the united states if it weren't for world war ii. at the end of world war ii, there were many displaced people in the soviet union including in mongolia and a coup of ca
with the american public and layout his healthcare plan. tell us exactly what he wants. then he can go to the wall with his public approval, his support in congress and push forward on that plan, make it it clear what's in it and what is not in it and then get into the negotiations with the house and the senate. >> host: is it too late, when has the train left the station? >> guest: well, you are letting the opponents of healthcare, of of the obama plan if there is one, concrete in form. you are letting the opponents define what it it is and they are very good at it it. just as democrats are very good at painting republicans into a corner, the republicans, conservatives are very good at painting the president into a corner. so what's happening is that they're punching at every possibility, every possible component of the plan and the president has yet to say, this is what i favor and here is the bill that i favor. he's letting these bills move through congress. they got this in them and that in them. you had a caller earlier who said he's read the entire bill. good for him. he can't find anythin
is 2% over last year's. do you use different deflators? >> we do different slightly different deflators. i'm using a gdp deflator. the defense department computes their own. i don't think that's the difference in one year because it's a slight difference and the difference would only really show up if you're looking over an extended period of time, 20, 30, 40 years. but what i've heard the department of defense saying is that the inflation adjusted growth will be less than 2% in future years. what i've heard them say for this year is around 4%. >> the other thing is 73% increase defense budget. in past years your predecessor would lay this out, 43% increase. does your include supplementles? >> that's looking at, well, i'd have to look. i believe that's looking at the base defense budget. >> your figure would have been the low? >> i'm not familiar with that figure. >> we used a lot in the past and this must be supplementals. >> we can look at that. >> baneline budget and two separate bills sent up not all rolled into one. so we should be thinking 660, 670 a year? >> it looks like what th
for joining us and have a great weekend. >> gregg: this is a fox news alert. we're awaiting a news conference from the national transportation safety board. officials are expected to gi an update on the deadly midair collision over the hudson river. i'm gregg jarrett. >> julie: i'm julie banderas. the associated presses recording the police department has located wreckage from the small plane that slammed into a tour khp chopper yesterday. so far divers have pulled five bodies from the waters. another four are believed to be missing. they recovered a pete's sightseeing helicopter. three people aboard the plane have been identified as members of a pennsylvania family. laura ingle is in new jersey and joins us live with the latest on the recovery effort. >> we are getting word that the search for the small plane that has been going on all day long and they have found the small aircraft just a little north of where we witnessed the helicopter coming out, at least part of it a short time ago. we had dramatic type tape of when the dievsz found the plane using a large crane off a huge boat. they we
of ems, our borough president has joined us, and we also have representatives from the national transportation safety board which will do the complete investigation, we have also have the coast guard on board and we have representatives from the port authority, the harbor police, the new york state police, over on the jersey side we have been working with the jersey state police and local police forces there. what we can tell is that the plane left from teeterboro, the helicopter had just taken off from west 30th street, there were a number of eyewitnesses who saw the crash, it would appear that the airplane ran into the back side of the helicopter. but keep in mind with all of these things, number one, until national transportation safety board makes the determination nothing is a fact. and it can take them many weeks or even years to determine what goes on. this probably won't be that big an investigation. but they will do a complete investigation before they announce their conclusions as to what happened. and whether there are any steps that should be taken to improve safety.
an announcement about distracted driving, specifically using a cellular phone to send text messages while driving. let's take a listen. >> as a result, 25 people were killed, and 135 were injured. if it were up to me, i would ban drivers from texting immediately. but we have learned from our efforts to get people to wear seat belts and persuade people not to drink and drive that laws are not always enough. often, you must combine education but enforcement to get results. that is why i have decided to convene a summit of senior transportation officials, safety advocates, law enforcement representatives, members of congress, and academics who study these matters. the will meet next month to discuss how to put an end to the rash of accidents and fatalities that have cropped up because of distracted driving. when we are done, i expect a list of concrete steps to announce. the bottom line is that we need to put an end to unsafe cellular phone use, typing on blackberries, and other activities requiring drivers to take their eyes off the road and focus away from driving. i said from the day i was confir
their constituents and most are talking about costs? >> that's correct. what polls have shown us. people are month more concerned of cost of health care overall and the desire, they north concerned was w access to health care or the quality of health care. they are really concerned that costs keep going up and they don't get any more for paying more. what necessity real wanted to see is what they like about the health care system preserved and what they don't like, costs, lowered. its old jock about congress, everybody hates congress but they love their congressman. that is how people feel about health care in this country. >> gregg: are people saying, look i don't buy the presidents argument it's not going to cost us something. he claims this is going to be monetarily neutral, it's not going going to increase the deficit. people don't buy that, do they? >> no, not in part. and the president is concerned that we have a rising deficit and the president is asking the country to spend more money. she saying spend that go money in the short term is going to save the country money in the long term, but
